Miriam Feder, a contributor to VoiceCatcher2, 3, and 4, invites the VC community to a public reading and talk-back of her latest play, Ephemory, on January 22, 2012 at 3:45 p.m. at Hipbone Studio, 1847 E Burnside, Portland, OR.
After a rousing premiere production of The Only Way Out is Through, at Portland’s Fertile Ground Festival of New Works in January 2010, Miriam has continued to pursue her work in theater. As she explains, “I’ve found my passion in weaving words and emotions into pieces that help us remember who we are and where we come from. I love to put these words to paper, whisper them into your ear and release them from the stage.”
Ephemory is all about remembering. Marnie finally encourages her mother, Carole, to talk about her life between 1937, when she immigrated from NAZI Germany, until 1947 when Carole found her own mother and sister and brought them to New York. Carole is elderly and her memory is failing. However, the tales of her past are so vivid they come to life before us. Both women want the stories bestowed. For Marnie, this part of her mother’s life is what now intrigues her. Carole also knows her life is diminishing and her legacy is to be secured.
Come support Miriam, a dynamic member of our VC community, and learn how a play-in-progress is critiqued and revised for final production. There’s ample parking around the studio.
